Meghan Trainor - NO

07 May Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Untouchable, untouchable, untouchable. Meghan Trainor is definitely one of the biggest artists in the music industry, her songwriting skills have not only landed her at the top of charts around the globe, but many other acts too. She is untouchable, the one we all need to keep watching. In a stance to tell women to stand up for themselves; they don't need a guy in their lives, she sends out some girl power and strengthens her dancing troupe; just say no.

Meghan Trainor first hit the scene with her debut single "All About That Bass" which hit number one in the UK, as well as many other countries. Since then she has been chasing the chart, failing to reach the top with solid hits. Her collaboration with Charlie Puth on "Marvin Gaye" put her back at the top in the UK, but no new solo chart toppers as of yet. This song is her first single from her new album "Thank You" which is expected to be released next week. Charting just outside the top ten at number 11, twice; this wasn't the hit she was expecting. The song reminds me of Beyoncé's "Crazy In Love", although apparently it was inspired by Britney Spears' "Overprotected" with NSYNC and Destiny's Child influences. It was written by Meghan Trainor, Eric Frederic and Jacob Kasher Hindlin.

Directed by Fatima Robinson and Barnaby Roper, the video is a strength in unity and girl power dance video, that has amazing visual performance sides.

Meghan Trainor has curved into a provocative temptress, whilst saying no no no. She's untouchable, she doesn't want to give her name, her sign, her number, no no no. Guys stay away, she's independent and wants to stick with her girls tonight.

The choreography enforces what she is singing and although it isn't complex, as such, it enforces her statements in the song. Set in a warehouse, Meghan Trainor stands out, although that coat does nothing whatsoever for her.

We're all used to seeing this sweet side to Meghan Trainor, but she needs to grow as an artist, and this is a perfect song and video to do just that. Encouraging being single, Meghan Trainor is easily becoming the next role-model for young girls, and although the video is pretty saucy, it's totally toned down and pretty average. A nice effort.
